I have created a Christmas double layout step-by-step using some papers from the My Minds Eye - Sophie range...which aren't actually Christmas papers but I thought they suited the theme well.
Step 1. I have used two sheets of cardstock as the background. Cut patterned paper to 10x10 inches and place over the top.
TIP: If you have trouble lining up your double layouts, tape them together on the back then separate when you are finished.
Step 2. Cut paper to 12 x 8 inches and place over the top.
Step 3. Cut two strips of 12 x 4 inches.
Step 4. Attach photos.
Step 5. Add journaling.
In this example, I have used:
- My Minds Eye - Sophie, In Love Splendid Surroundings Paper
- My Minds Eye - Sophie, Best Thing Ledger Girl Paper (die-cut)
- Ruby Rockit - green distressed alphas
- jounaling pen
- machine stitching
Remember sketches are just a guideline to follow, feel free to change any part of the sketch to suit your style - in my example I have used a bracket die cut instead of the 10 x 10 inch piece of paper and used four photos instead of five..
